  Power connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A power connector is an electrical connector designed to carry a significant amount of electrical power, usually as DC or low-frequency AC.
Some types of RF connector may also carry large amounts of power, but are considered as a separate category.
Connectors carrying small amounts of power are known as signal connectors.

 Choosing the Right Power Connector Interconnect
In the high circuit count application, total engagement forces for some connector families can be as high as 50 lbs., a force which may be considered excessive for some assembly operators or in applications where the connectors are difficult to reach.
A connector system having a positive lock requires the operator to deactivate a locking device before the connector halves can be separated, whereas a passive locking system will allow the connector halves to disengage by simply pulling the two halves apart with a moderate force.
The price of the connector system should be calculated on the basis of total applied cost, i.e., the cost of the housing (both plug and receptacle), the cost of the terminals, plus the cost of the labor to attach the wire to the terminal and to insert the terminal into the housing.

 Howstuffworks "How PC Power Supplies Work"
In a personal computer (PC), the power supply is the metal box usually found in a corner of the case.
Power supplies, often referred to as "switching power supplies", use switcher technology to convert the AC input to lower DC voltages.
The power supply also has a circuit that supplies 5 volts, called VSB for "standby voltage" even when it is officially "off", so that the button will work.

This trend is due primarily to the higher power conversion and transmission efficiencies of +12 VDC relative to +5 VDC or +3.3 VDC.
ATX12V power supplies should be designed to accommodate these increased +12 VDC current requirements and to address associated issues such as cross-regulation, capacitive loading, transient surge tolerance, cable voltage drop and cooling.
The presence of the +12 V power connector indicates that a power supply is ATX12V; the absence of the +12 V power connector indicates that a supply is ATX.

 Optimize System Performance With Power Connector Selection
For example, a power connector system may be rated for 9A, when tested with 16 AWG wire terminated to brass terminals inserted into a fully loaded two-circuit housing.
Power connectors are typically made of nylon or polyester.
For example, if a 24-circuit connector must meet the application's current requirements, then the pounds per circuit terminal engagement force must be multiplied by 24 to determine the actual force required to engage all 24 circuits.

 Please Help! Broken power adapter connector - The macosxhints Forums
If he's talking about the grey covers slipping off the power connector (on the white brick adapters), I can say that I've seen that a little more, but still not remotely enough to call them crap.
The power light rim is a nice touch, too, but I think I saw a third-party adapter with something similar somewhere.) And heck, if you really wanted an Apple adapter, eBay isn't a bad place to look in the hopes of picking up two or three on the cheap (can't hurt to look, anyway).
I'm normally one to defend apple, but the grommets on their power adapters are just not good enough to withstand regular knee top computing.

 XtremeSystems Forums - Is there a way to solder a power connector to vc without any?
I thought as the thin floppy connector on R9500 limits the power, maybe the cards that don't have a power connector at all also need additional power for better overclock.
Not likely as the engineers designed them without circuitry for the power connectors...unless you see on the card where a connector could be soldered.
Yes, i did that too on radeon 9500 pro, i soldered additional molex connector on the back of the card and i plugged both connectors and that helped for about 15 mhz more on the memory...

 petrolpump.co.in : energy sources, Electric power
Electric power, often known as power or electricity, involves the production and delivery of electrical energy in sufficient quantities to operate domestic appliances, office equipment, industrial machinery and provide sufficient energy for both domestic and commercial lighting, heating, cooking and industrial processes.
With Tesla and his patents, Westinghouse built a power system for a gold mine in Telluride, Colorado in 1891, with a water driven 100 horsepower (75 kW) generator powering a 100 horsepower (75 kW) motor over a 2.5-mile (4 km) power line.
For this reason, electric power is viewed as a natural monopoly.

 Rage3D Discussion Area - Does the X800 XT PCI-E require a power connector?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
I also noticed that I have a 350W power supply which should be O.K. for the card.
Feb 15, 2005 03:12 PM PCI-E slots can provide a lot more power than AGP slots, however the X800XT is borderline for needing the power connector - Beyond3D did all their testing with the X800XT PCI-E without the power connector in, so it is possible to run the system without it.
The power connector itself is a new six connector, you get it on some new power supplies, plus you usually get an adapter for a standard molex with the X800s.

 Higher Current Demands Drive Power Connector Development
The examples of better interfaces include: pluggable power connectors to help materialize N+1 redundant power systems with replaceable power supply units; board-to-board power connectors to reduce system assembly cost by eliminating the need for cables; and improved contact technologies to meet the need for current interruption under load at the power interface level.
Another trend affecting power connector development is the increased use of bus bar-based power electronic systems.
Because the connector contributes to the total inductance of the power delivery system, limiting the inductance in the order of hundreds of pH is essential to meet this challenge.
